Re: A trip to support Prachuab FC

I consider Prachuab to be a really top-class team now. John Mary is a terrific striker and I have enjoyed several of their matches with the guys. While I am delighted that they (we, it's our local team) won this game, I am bitterly disappointed about the post-game behavior of both sides. I did not s...

Re: Bangsaphan beach cleaning, Dec 1st

Thanks you guys for giving up your time on this. It is an unfortunate fact that when we get high winds and waves around this time of year the geography of the bay brings in a lot of rubbish onto the beach. Of course, as Buksida knows from his coral-cleaning dives, a great deal of this junk comes fro...

Re: PUBLIC WARNING: dangerous dogs on beach at Sangjun Resor

Well now, there is a surprise! (end sarcasm) I met the owner when going out this evening and asked where the dog was. My Thai is pretty poor but I thought he said it was locked up behind his house. Which I could accept. But, with a whole load of kids out enjoying their holiday on the beach tonight, ...

Re: PUBLIC WARNING: dangerous dogs on beach at Sangjun Resor

Thanks Mike. The victim, that is me, has done exactly that, with the help of someone who does have a certain "clout" with the police. The result was not entirely satisfactory. The police went with myself and my three Thai friends to see the owner. Most of the conversation was in very fast Thai so I ...

Re: Bangsaphan's first map, now available online

Thank you. This map is a truly invaluable resource. I have given out dozens of them when showing people where to go and what to see. And the visitors are always so appreciative. It attracts tourists, which means more business, which means more tourists...Pity some of your advertisers (cough!) can't ...

Re: A new menace to Bangsapan beach - jetskis

Mike, I agree. I was rather thinking of using an international visual sign. A stylised jetski in a red circle with a diagonal line across it. Heikevie. Thanks! You are more than welcome to play on your jetski over there. You are not inconveniencing anyone there and not trying to kill kids. Have fun ...

Re: A new menace to Bangsapan beach - jetskis

Quite right Buksi, nobody was attacking YOU heikevie, so do please stop getting uptight and abusive. It is quite unnecessary. You were not there and we all know it wasn't you. The new post was about this very large Thai group who appeared on the beach beside WhyNot when everyone was having a great t...

Went up there yesterday. There WAS one vehicle crossing the border, but all were wearing military uniforms. And a monk.

Vigilantes welcome

I have very recently been bitten by a certain notoriously nasty dog behind ITalay on the beach here. He has already bitten TWO of my close friends, one of whom lived in my place at the time. And several others. Those rabies jabs come out quite expensive at 2500 baht for the course. So I would recomm...

Re: Hotel with pool on the beach

There is a nice resort hotel with a pool in Thung Wua Laen beach down near Sabai Sabai (which is a really nice falang bar/restaurant by the way - do go there - it's great!). I can't recall the name of the resort now. It's still fairly pricey but nothing like the ridiculous prices at Cabana and nowhe...

Re: Cuisine restaurant

Yep, I said I would go back. So I tried their Thai menu today - fried Red Snapper in Thai spices. Just enough chilli to give it a zing but not overpower the flavour, lime-leaf and Thai basil and those lovely green peppercorns with lots of other stuff in it. Heavenly! I noticed a couple of the local ...

Cuisine restaurant

Cuisine. New restaurant in Suan Luang I had the pleasure of trying out this new place. Turn opposite the school on the way to Coral Hotel. Down the road and you can't miss the lights. The staff are prompt and the food is delivered hot and quickly. I had the pork chop in mushroom sauce. None of your ...

I think I may have screwed up.

Sorry Ray and any others who have lost their internet. I am probably responsible, having emailed the CEO of ToT to get mine fixed. RIGHT NOW! I really wasn't expecting them to cut yours off instead!
